I am a stay at home mum with two toddlers. I don’t work and after a recent Tupperware party have been asked if I’d like to join and do my own parties. I only probably have time for me to do 1-2 parties a week at the most. And though I’m scared of the prospect of speaking to strangers I realise I would probably get better at it with time. I’m also a sucker for freebies and my impression is that Tupperware has good promotions and giveaways. Any advice from Tupperware team members out there? Or even mums who love/hate Tupperware?

  • It’s a pyramid scheme

  • One of my sister in law was one a very long time ago , but she had to give it up as she didn’t have enough time to concentrate on setting up parties all the time . It also helps if you know a bit of cooking as she had to demonstrate the products and I ended up buying the white microwave steamer from her which I still have . She did enjoy it at the time , but still a fair bit of work if you want to more sales etc..

  • Tupperware is great to sign up to, but be sure you can get your starter parties first and be able to get your money to pay off your kit!! If you don’t think you can do your starter parties, honestly, I wouldn’t bother because is all you will be left with is a bill (but a lot of Tupperware =) ).
    If you can definitely and easily get your starter parties and you know you can reach the monetary levels needed, so go for it!! Tupperware is very rewarding =)

  • make sure you have atleast 10 friends of family members lined up ready to start you off by having parties! I used to sell it years ago, its great but you need a lot of parties to get started

  • A little bit off the topic of your question here but there is a new direct sales company launching in Australia very soon which I am very excited about. I always said I would never join a MLM company but this one has me sold! To join at the launch phase is a very unique opportunity. Think Tupperware, Mary Kay, Avon, etc – they’re everywhere! This one isn’t! Let me know if you’d be interested in learning more =)

  • I LOVE tupperware! I would be so sad if it was to ever end…I am a sucker for the pink products! I do agree that it might be tough to get people to have the parties but you never know! It is still super successful after all these years so maybe go for it! You haven’t got anything to loose!

  • Tupperware is so good and it lasts, if you can do 1 or 2 parties a week go for it!

  • Love Tupperware, if you can do 1 or 2 parties a week go for it!!!

  • Thanks for asking this question as I have been pondering this too!

  • I would vote against Tupperware. I found their products weren’t that good, were hard to use and hard to clean and expensive. As others have said, there are lots of people already “doing” Tupperware too. perhaps you could look into other sales products like organic cosmetics or something else that isn’t already over-done!

  • How many people actually buy Tupperware products these days? It was popular years ago but now I think it is too expensive. People tend to buy cheaper products from the big stores. I personally think it would be very hard to get people to buy it and therefore you wouldn’t make much money.

  • I loved my time in Tupperware! Just make sure to pace yourself, be super organized with paperwork, give your customers the best service and gave fun!

  • Personally I’d steer clear of MLM; the market is so saturated & you’ll have to put in a lot of work for very little return. My little sister was lured into the whole Tupperware thing & soon found out it wasn’t what she thought it was (pushy & very money oriented). My mum also fell under the guise of DoTerra which whilst yes it’s a great product it is ridiculously expensive & you’ll work yourself to the bone trying to make it up the ranks..

  • Personally I’m not a big fan. There are so many people doing it and you need to constantly try to sell products for it to be worth your while. At the same time if you can think of a group of friends/family you want host a tupperware party with, then go for it. No harm in it and you might get something out of it.

  • be careful on how much you have to spend for starting your own business of selling it.
